I'm Peggy Canales, Associate Professor of Industrial Manufacturing Engineering. In addition to teaching courses like Lean Manufacturing, Work Design, Safety Engineering, and Professional Practice, I'm also the faculty advisor to our student chapters of the Electrical Manufacturing and Coil Winding Association (EMCWA), the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), co-advisor to the Alpha Omega Epsilon Sorority (still in the forming stage) and counselor to the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). I'm also the freshman advisor for Industrial Manufacturing Engineering (IME) students.
I really enjoy taking my students on field trips to enhance the learning process. While studying the Toyota Production System in the Lean Manufacturing course, we visited the Toyota production plant in Georgetown, Kentucky.
